Sometimes a well-written piece allows one to step outside of one’s identity and perceive what it is like to be someone else. This is one.

This is a “wow” read, in support of my colleagues out there using social media for good, and how about 50% of our colleagues suffer through nearly unimaginable interactions in a largely unregulated space. AND one way to fight back.

Patients View their Own Radiology Images Online: first published experience (UCHealth)

What uses did they find for these images? Does UCHealth recommend this practice? Did CT Lin get fired as a result of these actions? #hcldr #whyinformatics #hitsm #hotoffthepress

We surveyed patients who had access to view NOT ONLY their radiology reports BUT ALSO their radiology images (including plain film, CT, MRI, PET, etc) online via the EHR patient portal.

What did they think? Were they worried? Did they post the images online? Who did they share with? (hint, 4% shared on social media)

These questions, and more, are answered in the article. Click the link above, dear Reader, and press on.

CMIO teahouse menu

How can tea improve clinical decision support? How does it help change organizations? Are you kidding?

Links to some of these teas:

CMIO’s take? Those of you who have worked with me know that one of my favorite things is to have 1:1 meetings in my office and serve tea. Taking inspiration from my spouse who enjoys throwing cocktail parties and creating a fanciful drink menu, I recently put together a CMIO’s teahouse menu. I hope you enjoy it.

“The useful part of a pot is where there is no pot” -Audrey Tang, Digital Minister of Taiwan

Hollowed out
clay makes a pot.
Where the pot’s not
Is where its useful.

Poem 11

Thirty spokes
meet in a hub.
Where the wheel isn’t
Is where it is useful.

Hollowed out
clay makes a pot.
Where the pot’s not
Is where its useful.

Cut doors and windows
to make a room.
Where the room isn’t,
there room for you.

So the profit in what is
is in the use of what isn’t.

Watch this video/ read the transcript. I love this for several reasons:

  • The Taiwanese are my people
  • “Digital Minister” is the best title of all time
  • Taiwan’s national response to COVID is a model for the world (Taiwan: fewer than 1 death per 100,000 vs USA: 66 deaths per 100,000)
  • The transparency of information and the building of trust: the government published its COVID and mask data with open API’s so private industry and nonprofits could build 100’s of apps to improve healthcare and the commonwealth
  • The POETRY of Taoism!

CMIO’s take? It is worth a watch. Informatics applied effectively at the national level. And, bonus: mindful Taoist philosophy applied to transparency of information. Zowie!
